MADRID.- Lourdes Fernández has submitted her resignation as head of IFEMA International Fair of Contemporary Art. Thus ending a career of four editions (2007-2010) in which she has led ARCOmadrid. In her resignation letter she has alleged differences in the development of the project.

IFEMA respects the decision made by Lourdes Fernández, which appreciates her contribution to ARCOmadrid, and reiterates its wish to continue working with the industry to define the best model of the fair to meet the challenges ahead. In this sense, IFEMA will announce who will pick up the baton in the Direction of the Fair, while work is progressing on the project settings.

ARCOmadrid celebrate its thirtieth edition at Feria de Madrid between 16 and February 20, 2011. ARCOmadrid, the International Contemporary Art Fair, is already preparing its upcoming 30th edition. Some of the issues to be reviewed are a stronger focus on emerging art and the Latin American participation at the fair. In upcoming months it will also be decided what country or city will be the guest of honour at the 30th International Contemporary Art Fair of Madrid. These are the working lines to continue reinforcing the fair, its international status, prestige, quality and ranking among the world’s best contemporary art fairs.
